Detroit Tigers Mashed By New York Mets Again

At least tonight they put up a fight.  But it wasn’t enough and the New York Mets continued to pound Tiger pitching to the tune of a 16-9 win.  The Tigers hit 5 homers, two by Miguel Cabrera, but every time they got back in the game the Mets would score some more.  Phil Coke gave up 4 runs in the first inning 

and would give up 4 more before exiting after 4 innings.  Coke took the loss and is now 1-8 on the season, and is probably heading back to the bullpen after this latest shelling.  The rest of the Tiger bullpen couldn’t keep the Mets off the scoreboard either.  Perry, Alburquerque and Purcey all helped to fatten the New Yorker’s batting averages.  The only Tiger pitcher to keep the Mets from scoring was position player Don Kelly, who came in to get the last out in the top of the 9th.  The Mets have scored 30 runs in two games against the Tigers.  It’s been like watching the Lions play.  The other team is scoring touchdowns while we are lucky to kick the occasional field goal.

The good news is that we only have to face the Mets one more time this year.  Even better is the fact that they (the Mets) have to face Justin Verlander in that game tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 at Comerica park.  Here’s hoping that we give the Mets a taste of their own medicine tomorrow.
